Making my own startpage using HTML/CSS

This week I learned HTML and CSS from Thinkful Frontend development course included in Github student pack. I always wanted to have a cool browser startpage, so I went ahead and coded one myself using HTML/CSS I had learned. It took me about 5-6 hours to create my first startpage. Here is how it looks.

I also had to deploy a small server to serve the startpage to Firefox because I wanted the link to look better than “file:///”. So some quick Google searches lead to a small startup server script. I then use that server’s address and port as my home page in Firefox.
